You Can Live Without a Pancreas
by Clyde Vaughan & Shirley Vaughan
The human body is a complicated machine of organs, chemicals, and life. But what happens when you lose a vital piece of this machinery? Are you sentenced to die, or can you fight back?
You can live without a pancreas!
Due to a surgeon's horrendous mistake during routine gallbladder surgery, author Clyde Vaughan lost his pancreas. After weeks in the hospital, struggling to stay alive, he was finally released with an insulin pump and enzymes to digest his food. He received little to no information as to how to actually live without a pancreas. Even his doctors couldn't advise him.
After much research, as well as trial and error, the author has found a regimen for living a full life without his pancreas. If you are suffering from the loss of your pancreas, You Can Live Without a Pancreas can help you return to a near-normal lifestyle.
'This book is filled with practical information about coping with a life-changing health situation, as well as poignant and humorous stories of the author and his wife.'
'This is a fascinating book that highlights the limits of modern medical practice...The lesson...is to question your doctors, learn about the risks of 'routine' treatment, and accept that...there are still huge unknowns in modern medicine.'
'Utilizing his down-home intuition and his wife's motivating spirit, Vaughan demonstrates that the impossible is actually attainable. Clyde's recovery...is a metaphor for how any of us can respond to life's unexpected challenges.'
